Wouldn't bother: You don't list the actual time that has passed since her last med. However, I wouldn't bother to treat such a low level of fever at all. Low fevers help the baby increase their heart rate so they circulate healing blood factors more effectively. It is natures way to help healing. Pushing fever meds can extend the duration of minor illness.
